Product description

Lapierre spicy 516 2011 size large in good condition with some notable upgrades.

A very popular and well reviewed bike: "Outstanding levels of feedback, control and composed confidence create a phenomenal all-mountain all-rounder" (see reviews and video below).

An outstanding enduro bike with an RRP of £3300 along with some serious upgrades including XTR cranks, Raceface Narrow-wide chainring, 10-speed gearing and 2014 Formula C1 brakes makes this a potential bargain!

If you prefer, I can re-install the 2x front gearing (SLX shifter & direct mount mech 22 - 36 chainrings &bash - all little-used) instead of the narrow-wide.

I will include a choice of handlebars (see specs below); the Shimano XTR crank extractor tool and some shimano PD-M424 pedals to get you going.

Reason for sale: I decided to buy something with less travel and bigger wheels and can't afford to keep both.

Any questions - feel free to ask.

Condition

Frame:
Lapierre Spicy 516 2011 Large:
160mm travel; 50cm seat tube.
Generally good: New main pivot bearings and chainstay pivots; few scratches and heel-rub; small dent on top tube (pictured) sustained recently after purchasing and has not worsened since. Shock bushings have no play and an offset bushing is installed. (normal bushing also included)

Shock
Fox rp2
Good – works fine.

Fork
Fox 36 Talas R
Works well: feels smooth, TALAS functions, damper is fine. Small scratches on stanctions; axel is a little corroded. No notchy feel or bushing play.

Wheels
Fulcrum Red zone.
Bearings are fine in both front and rear with no play or excessive drag; freehub works as it should. Rims are ok with no major dings but some scratches on the bed of the rear. Both will seal tubeless. The wheels are not perfectly true but not nearly so much as would be noticeable or affect tyre clearance.

Cranks & BB
Shimano XTR
Cranks are fine – just scuffed by feet and a few scratches on ends. XTR BB could need replaced soon.

Brakes
Formula C1 2014 180mm rotors.
Nearly as new – taken for one ride only. Bleed isn’t perfect but that’s how they came from factory.

Thompson elite 31.6mm & Madison flux
Seatpost shows no signs of serious wear.

Sadddle: small tear in side.

Raceface NW 32T.
